Subject: Slink script to create /dev/sbpcd failure
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
The scenario: installing slink on a machine with a known good SB and
"Panasonic" interfaced CD-ROM (Teac CD-55); both have been used in Linux
systems without problems, and installed correctly on this machine in the
separate partitions that contain Caldera 1.3. Installation is from the
standard resc1440 & drv1440 floppies, written on a Hamm machine from the
Slink CD-ROM (Linux Central's, which sppears to be from the official
What happened: the module installed fine, but there appears to be a script
that runs after the module is installed; this script aborted after
creating the /dev/cdrom symlink to /dev/sbpcd0, but apparently prior to
creating the latter device file. Of course the cdrom didn't work after
that. The error referred to EOF in backquote [context?], and printed a
line of shell script that setup the symlink.
I'm sorry not to have more details, but after this happened for the second
time, which was when I actually read all of what was reported, I decided
it was much simpler to put the Slink CD into the Hamm machine and install
over NFS, which, as usual, worked just fine.

This has been fixed in the Potato version of the boot-floppies.
Thanks for reporting it.
PS: If Joey says so, good enough for me.
